While I always loved the College Life to Army Wife name, (and believe me I thought I was SO clever coming up with that one!) in the 3 short years I have been an Army wife I already feel like I’ve outgrown it. I guess that makes sense though, you can’t live your life in a season of transition and in a sense, College Life to Army Wife is exactly what that is: Transition. Leaving my college days behind me and diving head first into the fun, crazy, beautiful, frustrating, ever-changing world that is being a wife, specifically an Army wife.
Since the beginning of my (somewhat spotty, I admit) blog. I have had two blog names, five homes, one baby, and lived in two countries! I hope with this new blog name I can being a new chapter in my life as a more confident wife and mother and take this blog to a whole new level. So in an effort to broaden my blogging horizons I have changed my blog name to ArillaBlog. Arilla is a family name passed down on my dad’s side of the family and I never gave it much thought until I did a little research. According to BabyNames.com, Arilla means “dancing ground”, and really, how more perfect could that be? Not only do I have a love and passion for dancing and everything related to performing, but what is this life if not a ground for dancing?!
So I am beginning 2014 with a fresh page and a new name and I hope you’ll join me :)
“Then young women will dance and be glad, young men and old as well. I will turn their mourning into gladness; I will give them comfort and joy instead of sorrow.”
Jeremiah 31:13 NIV
